Dont know if being from California my opinion counts but I agree with MOPride that some parts of Missouri feel southern. The news channels refer to Arkansas as the midwest, but those news channels are wrong its still the south. I even felt a slight hint of the south in the very east part of Kansas but for some reason Kansas City felt like it had a south flavor to it as to St louis feels all midwest.

Ive been thru Maryland twice and it felt southern to me but Ive only been thru Washington D.C and Baltimore.Perhaps things have changed since 1995 and 2007? But Virginia, NC,SC GA,TN,MS,AL,LA,KY are for sure southern to me. How about West Virginia though could that count as part of the south?

All those states you named are definitely southern by no stretch of the imagination; you are correct! West Virginia is southern until you get up in the panhandles. So they say anyway.

WV is hillybilly but not necessarily southern.

Hillybilly =/= southern.

I never understood that. Aren't all hillbilly's southern? What's the difference between a hillbilly and a southerner? Serious question.

Well, ok. I always believed there was some kind of relationship between the two.

No more than there is a relationship between hillbilly and rural areas of the Northeast and Midwest.

Most of Missouri, most of Maryland, and all of Delaware are not southern. TX, OK, AR, KY, TN, WV, VA, NC, SC, GA, AL, MS, LA, and FL are all the south.

KC is not the south. It's Midwestern. Washington, D.C. and Baltimore are not southern whatsoever.

It's not culturally southern. Linguistically it's intermediate, more of a transition zone.
